The Dance Company of Middlebury 2010-2011

The company has created a diverse concert of works for performance at Middlebury and on tour to New Orleans exploring issues of wealth and class as they express in culture. Company members will present new work by Artistic Director Christal Brown, guest choreographers Trebien Pollard and Paloma McGregor, and their own collaborative piece. The company has received additional support from the Committee on the Arts.

Mission Statement

The Dance Program at Middlebury College focuses on the creation of original creative work in a context that is interdisciplinary, grounded in both biological and environmental perspectives, and deeply connected to the current dance field.  The program distinguishes itself through a rich curricular tradition of improvisation, somatic learning, and utilization of the arts in the quest for cultural and environmental awareness.
